Child of Silence (Bo Bradley Series Book 1) by Abigail Padgett

In Child of Silence, the first award-winning Bo Bradley Mystery, a wise old Paiute woman finds a four-year-old boy tied to a mattress in an abandoned shack in the hills above San Diego. Child abuse investigator Bo Bradley gets the case. Staff at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children assume the boy is mentally impaired because he cannot talk, but Bo remembers a little sister named Laurie. She knows that the boy, like Laurie, is deaf.

Complicating things is Bo’s manic depressive disorder, a troubling but occasionally valuable problem for which she always, well sometimes, takes her meds. The prime directive in Bo’s job is “Don’t become emotionally involved with the child!” But the little boy is so bright inside his silence, and so alone. Bo feels the ominous first ripples of an oncoming manic episode and grabs her meds, but they won’t have much effect for weeks and the child is in danger now!

Risking her job and ultimately her life in a perhaps-delusional race to protect a four-year-old whose only word is his own name – “Weppo” – Bo finds herself alone with the child in a desert night fraught with terrors as she tries to reach an imagined safety among the Paiute. But political intrigue, desperate secrets and a relentless evil lurk in every shadow of a moonlit landscape in which Bo has only her own intense and uncanny perceptions as guide. She knows she’s “crazy,” but sometimes crazy sees what rational cannot. And “crazy” is now Weppo’s only chance for a life!

Thriller: A Call Girl’s Tale Part One (Thriller, Murder, Mystery, Prostitute, Sex, Death, Suspense, Serial Killer… by Tracy Stewart

Thriller: : A Call Girl’s Tale Part One – A Question of Honor

In this part of a trilogy of stories, readers are introduced to a young girl, a prostitute with a background that haunts her. With Italian father and American mother, our heroine is faced with life changing decisions, brought about by her new association with Emily.

Emily is going to change the approach of the young girl to her trade as a prostitute. Why? Because call girls with a reputation make more money than street prostitutes. What Emily doesn’t know is the girl’s background. She doesn’t know her attitude toward emotions that disturb her and drive her to murder.

Over the course of the past, Celestine learns how to cope with past events and how to separate men’s fantasies from any kind of emotional involvement. Will she be found out? Will the detectives seeking out Paul Delaney’s killer strike lucky? There are no spoilers here. Readers need to follow the story to find out what happens.

Thriller: A Call Girls Tale Part Two – A Question of Honor

In this episode in the story of Celeste, the scene opens in Tuscany in the villa that Celeste had inherited from a distant relative. Away from the hurt of the past encounter with a client, she is able to unwind and hopes to find some solace among people who accept her as part of their community.

A chance news story hits the Italian newspapers that changes the pattern of events to follow. Clara, her best friend, tells her that Emily is dead and that some of the girls who had gone on from prostitution to decent lives were in danger. Celeste returns to the United States only to find that circumstances have changed. Will she find the person responsible for the news headlines?

Will she be able to stop others from suffering the same indignity? The shock of events that greets her takes her toward facing another challenge. Will Bill Chaney, the police inspector dealing with the death of Paul Delaney, find the missing link between recent deaths and the mysterious case of Paul Delaney’s death?
